Homemade Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats

I can't believe back-to-school season time is already here again. I have been racking my brain and trying to compile lists of all the things that I use to make for my kids for their lunches. Our district had free lunch and breakfast for the last two years, but now I am back to making them again. My kid's do not like school lunches, and I know I can make a better-quality lunch for less at home. But sometimes I do like to throw little treats in their lunch boxes for them.

My friend made these fruity pebble marshmallow treats or rice Krispie treats with fruity pebbles at a party she hosted a few weeks back and they were so good. PLUS, they are only three ingredients and so easy to make that I decided to re-create them. I will say that FRESH marshmallows are the way to go.

Homemade Fruity Pebble Marshmallow Treats Recipe

What You Need:

- 10 oz marshmallows or 7 oz marshmallow creme
- 6 cups fruity pebble cereal
- 3-4 tablespoon butter (not calorie reduced or tub margarine)

What You Do:

1. Melt butter over low heat in large pot.
2. Add marshmallows and melt them down as well until completely melted.
3. Remove from heat.
4. Add fruity pebbles two cups at a time and stir thoroughly. Stir until evenly coated.
5. Spray Pyrex pan (13 X 9 X 2-inch pan) and add mixture. Either pat down with buttered spatula or use wax paper to press down.
6. Let cool. Cut into two-inch squares and enjoy! Best enjoyed, but store no more than two days at room temperature. Freeze for up to 6 weeks. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

Microwave Directions:

In microwave-safe bowl heat butter and marshmallows on HIGH for 3 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir until smooth. Follow steps 4, 5, and 6 above. Microwave cooking times may vary.

What do you think of these treats? Do you make your kids' lunches? Have you ever made homemade rice Krispie treats before?
